I injured one of my knees playing field hockey and wanted to see someone who was knowledgeable about knee injuries specific to this type of sport given that I had gone through two ACL reconstructions 15 years ago when I did college sports and my knees had gotten progressively worse over the years. Other orthopedics I had seen over time were unhelpful, basically telling me I had two options, to quit sports or get two knee replacement surgeries. Dr. Higgins came to my attention because there was an article about him in a magazine about working with the U.S. Women’s National Field Hockey team and how nice the players thought he was. I figured he was a good person to see given his knowledge base and potentially good bedside manner. When I got to the visit the technician took x-rays of both knees and processed the films before I saw Dr. Higgins. Once I got to see him, he went over my x-rays and reviewed my options for remedying my knee issues. He had a wonderful bedside manner, made me feel completely at ease and reassured me that there were viable options for getting me back to full knee health and that they didn’t need to include surgery if I didn’t want it. He also sent me to get MRIs on both knees for further consideration. Once he got the results of those back, he called me at home in the evening to review them also. At that time I was not able to pursue rehab or surgery because of logistics but do plan on following up with him as my doctor whenever I can fit it in. The only issues I had with dealing with his practice is that first the office staff was not that helpful and friendly when I was there and dealt with them afterwards about billing. The second issue is that despite having a very good health insurance plan, Dr. Higgins was not in my network and required a steep out-of-network copay to see him. It was worth it for me, but it’s something to be aware of before you see him.
